Wow is right. On its own I love it already. The characters, the mecha, the
ship, it's fine. Now, as a retelling of Gundam... I don't know. I mean,
they'd have to do them *all* that way, then, Z, ZZ, F-91... Maybe it's truer
to the books and Tomino's original idea before the toy company needs took
over? I'm really interested in seeing the MS designs (if they can be called MS
anymore). I'm curious what the "Gundam needs a new direction instead of
rehashing old designs but I hate the Turn-A design because it's ugly no, wait,
now I like it" crowd thinks.
